Perhaps the fan is a sadist, or the artist is a masochist, and therefore
wouldn't fully enjoy the work unless there was a sense of danger,
underground, and threat to the activity?? Would sampling be so fun if it
was legal? Is it simply a means to an ends, or is it perhaps the ends in

Sampling is both a means to an end and an end in itself. I sample my music
      collection ["illegally"] because I don't really have many other means
      of synthesis (ie drum machines, synthesizers, etc), but people like
      Steev sample to demonstrate what can be done with that method of
      creating music. It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish.
